Powerball Expected to Climb to More than $1.3 Billion

Anticipation turned to disappointment for millions of people who purchased¬† Powerball tickets ahead of last night’s drawing.

Now people will be running out to buy tickets for the next drawing on Wednesday and the estimated $1.3 billion jackpot!

That number is all but certain to grow before the next drawing for the largest Powerball jackpot ever.

The odds to win are one in 292.2 million.

Lottery officials say some people gained a little wealth Saturday.

Twenty-five tickets won $1 million by matching five numbers.

Three other tickets won $2 million because they paid extra to multiply smaller prizes.
